BMJ Series Explores How Research Can Strengthen Health Systems Across Americas

The BMJ: Strengthening research for health in the Americas
“High quality research — and the evidence that it yields — is essential for improving global health and health equity, as well as economic development. In 2009, member states of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) approved a regional policy on research for health in the Americas, the first such WHO regional policy. … This collection explores how this research can drive effective and efficient health systems across the Americas, and offer insights and perspectives on developments and challenges following the implementation of these policies” (July 2018).
